  • The project
    A parish center is being built at 218 S. Maple Ave. in Hannibal. The two-level structure will feature 5,400 square feet.
    The parish offices will be housed in the new building. In addition there will be ample space for meetings and funeral luncheons.
    There will be a kitchenette, restrooms and storage space for parish records on the lower level. The upper level will have a banquet room with seating for 100 people, a full kitchen and restrooms.
     
    What’s
    happening
    A good deal of the snow that was on the ground last week has disappeared and temperatures are considerably warmer than a week ago. Consequently some exterior work was underway Thursday. The installation of soffit on the south and west sids of the new structure was taking place.
    A good deal of  work continued on the interior of the upper and lower levels.
    According to Father Mike Quinn, a downstairs hallway was receiving a second coat of paint Thursday.  
     
    What’s next
    Some ceiling work was underway Thursday. However, all the ceiling work won’t be completed until after all the air conditioning and heating installation is finished.
    According to Janice Rupp of Holy Family Church, once the drainage system is finished the lower parking lot will be poured, providing conditions are dry enough.
     
    Anticipated cost
    The projected cost of the construction project is $1,047,000.
     
    Who’s paying
    The money necessary to pay for the center has already been pledged by church members. The pledges were made over the past year during the “Living our Faith, Building our Vision” fund-raising campaign.
     
    Projected date for completion
    It was hoped that the new parish center would be ready for use by early 2014. At this point a completion date has not been set.
     
    Each week, the Courier-Post is documenting the improvements taking place on the parish center. For more information, contact:
